Scrubs is back, ya'll, and so is 41-year-old Dominican actress Judy Reyes, who plays its no-nonsense, unloveable Dominican nurse, Carla Espinosa. The hit sitcom kicks off its 8th, and likely final, season tonight on its new network, ABC (the first 7 seasons aired on NBC). Reyes made us all misty-eyed earlier this year in the Lifetime movie, Little Girl Lost: The Delimar Vera Story, but she's really at her best on Scrubs, where she proves time and again that laughter is the best medicine.
Despite how funny Reyes is in the role, I can't help but notice how unbelievably annoying and unbearable her character would be in real life. Carla is bossy, rude, sarcastic, and has exactly five moods--and most of them aren't very pleasing. Take a look at some of Carla's funniest scenes from Scrubs in a little segment I like to call, "The Five Stages of Carla." Then, tell me in the comment section if you think you'd get along with someone like her in real life!
STAGE 1: WEEPY, PREGNANT CARLA
STAGE 2: CONFRONTATIONAL CARLA
STAGE 3: UNFUNNY CARLA
STAGE 4: DEFIANTLY DOMINICAN CARLA
STAGE 5: ROMANTIC (BUT STILL A LITTLE BOSSY) CARLA
